Ben visits Mal who is in her tent, painting. He has come to talk to her about the incident with Evie's cupcakes and shows her an image on his phone that reads "Mal's a princess in waiting, alright...a princess in waiting to mess up! Princess-aster." Mal finds this shocking, as what she did was an accident. So to make it up to Audrey, Mal has painted a portrait of her as her favourite heroine, her mom.
Ben is not so sure that a portrait will patch things up with Audrey, remembering what happened at Family Day. Mal remembers too but thinks she has done good with Audrey's portrait, and points out she has not done anything nasty, like put Captain Hook's coat on her. She then begins to joke around and gets carried away when she uses magic to add Captain Hook's coat, Cruella's fur stole and her mother's horns to Audrey's portrait. Worried that someone might see what Mal has done, Ben tells her to quickly change it back but its too late. Someone catches a photo of Mal's hexed portrait and publishes it, reading "Soz, looks like we have R answer about Mal...maybe she's not so "good" after all. Smh."
- Mal is shown to dislike made-up words, stating "my people may be evil, but what you Auradon kids are doing to the English language is brutal."
